    The result is that we definitely produce too much waste, and it is increasing every year. It is difficult to really efficiently avoid waste because the manufacturing industry often offers no other option.

    Often you let the water flow unconsciously. It is necessary to be much more conscious with the resource by thinking about its use.

    Probably with the gas heating, which we will exchange for an alternative heating system as soon as possible.

    Ein interessanter Monat geht zu Ende. Ich habe einiges gelernt und mir Gedanken gemacht was ich noch verbessen kann. So tausche ich nach und nach Plastik gegen Glas aus. Versuche noch mehr Verpackungsmüll zu vermeiden.

    Liebes DACH-Team, es hat mir große Freude gemacht, mit Euch zu kämpfen. Die letzten Male habe ich in meinen Teams oft alleine gekämpft und es war schön zu sehen, dass es auch Menschen gibt die Spaß haben, sich mit den Themen täglich auseinderzusetzen, auch wenn unser Leben stressiger geworden ist. Danke dafür. Platz 21 ist bei über 800 Teams auch etwas, worauf wir stolz sein können. Vielleicht sehen wir uns im nächsten Jahr wieder.
